Ready to go PAPERLESS?
Looking for a way for your students to discover facts about some of the famous figures from World War II? Here is a way your students can discover these historic figures that allows them to find out some basic facts, but also allows them to identify what they think is important about each person. Each biography card has the same format and allows students to gather a very brief snapshot of who these people were and what they did that contributed to WWII. Decide how many you'd like students to do and make a mini-research project out of it. Kids really enjoy this format!
Students will need access to Google Slides and if you use Google Classroom you can make a copy for each student and they can type directly in the file. No more copy machines!!
Also available as a paper version
